TNT Fest a success

Clouds and a nice breeze and some new items made the annual TNT (Tournaments & Teens) a rousing success.

More than 130 participants took part in the 5K BREAST inflatable race,  sponsored by Faith Community Hospital, which included 10 inflatable items. A staggered start among all the inflatables meant no top results or times were kept, according to race officials. A comfortable bazaar inside the air-conditioned activity center allowed everyone a break in the heat. Those that wanted to stay outside could peruse the carnival.

Pet entertainment and a parade took place with many of the tournaments taking place in the afternoon. Large crowds came out to see the 3-on-3 tournament along with competitions in sand volleyball, washers, and horseshoes.

Evening saw the start of the red, white, and blue kid parade, the jalapeno pepper eating contest and more bands to take the stage in anticipation of the annual fireworks show at the lake.
